I think you may have been referring to my pics - if so, thanks! And thank YOU for your consistently informative and detailed posts. I have learned a lot from your commentary.

As to you your guess about my location, you are about a half a block off - the Excelsior is on the northeast corner of 2nd and 57th, and I'm at the northwest corner of 1st and 57th. If fact, you can see the Excelsior in several of the photos I have posted, as well as in the stop-motion video I've been working on - it's the white building on the right in this pic (and click on the pic for my updated video):

57th&1st,

Oh, please forgive me!! I am so sorry for not properly crediting your photos!! (Age probably has something to do with such a gross error somebody slap me, please!!)

You are correct about the location: The Excelsior is on Second Ave & 57St, northeast corner. Again my mistake.

Again, please accept my apologies!! I thank you for your compliments, and once again, thank you for your photos.

Cool pic, but you'd need about a 100-year exposure to capture that many stars in the NYC sky.

Yes, many thanks to 57th&1st for his excellent photos during construction. That terrace has a great angle for showing how 432 Park explodes upward from its local group of buildings.
